Project grants

Project grants are part of the DEBRA International Small grants scheme. A call for small grants is open once a year, and will usually be announced in spring each year.

Members of DEBRA International may request financial support for EB-related projects. Small grants of up to €3.500 can be applied for on an annual basis for specific projects that will benefit people with EB.


  • A call for small grants is open once a year. The call (including deadline) is usually announced within the member community in the first quarter of each year.
  • Only current full and associate financial member groups of DEBRA International are eligible to apply for project grants; if you are not yet a member, please see the section Join DEBRA International.
  • The fund and the number of projects that can be funded, depend on the budget available.
  • Please hand in a short application (see Application form in the 'Downloads' box on the left), outlining the aims, costs and timeframe of the planned project.
  • Applications will be discussed and decided upon by a working group with recommendations forwarded to the Executive Committee of DEBRA International for approval.
  • Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be informed promptly.
  • Successful applicants will be paid the amount granted shortly afterwards. Please note that any unclaimed funds or funds returned due to incorrect details may result in the costs reducing the possible grant payment.
  • After completion of the project, you are asked to provide a short project report (see the Reporting form in the 'Downloads' box on the left).
  • Based on these reports, projects will be presented to the community at the following DEBRA International Congress, in our newsletter and on this website.

If you have any further questions, please contact the DEBRA International Office.
